Not either of those, but I am playing with a bunch of Cardinal fans that might just be saving their priorities for the "big bat" St. Louis is going to get :-D .

Nah, I know I probably won't get him.

Bigger question...what happens with the Astros line-up? Lately they have been starting Lamb and first, Berkman in right. Obviously, Huff will immediately join the line-up. Do they end up platooning Lamb and P. Wilson now, or will Lamb just go back to the bench?

Also, on Zobrist, regarding his walks-- he's drawing all these walks in front of Hunter Pence. Pitchers would be trying their damndest to keep guys off the bases with him coming up, so Zobrist and Josh Anderson must get plenty of strikes to swing at.

I gotta believe you plattoon him as well as he has hit right handers and as much as Wilson strikes out

I don't know what Wilson's splits are on right handers though so I'm just shooting from the hip

Which is kind of stupid since it appears that part of the reason he's got such a temper is because he's not in the big leagues.

Picked him up 3 weeks ago as backup for Konerko. I have had him in lineup everday due to versatility. Should prosper in Houston

so who's going to replace Huff in the DRay's lineup?




That would be Wigginton for now.

This move could be bad news for Ensberg owners.

Update: Houston GM Tim Purpura says that the Astros' acquisition of Aubrey Huff will cut into the slumping Ensberg's playing time, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Recommendation: Purpura said that the addition of Huff brings "a professional hitter" to Houston's lineup, and Purpura noted Huff could play at first, third or in the outfield. Ensberg hasn't been right since missing some time early in June (shoulder), hitting only .158 (9-for-57) since June 15, with just three doubles and one homer.

I guess this will be his lesson to learn to control his temper then. Maybe the 50 game suspension and the not being in Tampa in June will make him want to just play ball, and not be Dukes Jr. and have the bad attitude.

I doubt they continue to bench Ensberg. They may do it for a couple of games but Ensberg will show why he deserves to be in that lineup.
